Does your application or hiring process include criminal background checks?

Are your policies and procedures in compliance with the EEOC’s new guidance?

Pepsi and its team of lawyers thought theirs were.  But the EEOC saw things differently and recently sued the company for using background checks in a discriminatory way.

The result: Pepsi paid $3.2 million to settle the race-bias charge, and they’ve agreed to rewrite their background checking policy and procedures.

When you dig for dirt, it’s not just the EEOC you have to worry about.  In fact, it’s essential that you also follow the rules put forth by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Title VII, the ADA, and federal and state privacy laws.

Introducing Background Checks: What’s Legal, What’s Not – a powerful resource you can use to ensure you hire the best candidate for the job and safeguard your organization against negligent hiring claims.
